the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
